Today's financial recap and tomorrow's financial outlook.

Today on T3 Live

T3 Live Buzz and Banter contributor Brandon Perry took a look at the technicals on IBM, noticing the positive and reconstructive action in the stock. He believes that IBM has settled in a durable low back in late January, then created a new trendline upward, broke through resistance and filled the gap. He will hold it until around $200 per share with stops placed fairly tight around the old resistance line.
